ESET Internet Security recognized with Outstanding Product Award by AV-Comparatives


Dubai, UAE: ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has received recognition with an Outstanding Product Award in AV-Comparatives’ Public Consumer Main Test Series for 2020. ESET Internet Security was assessed by the leading independent test lab, achieving Advanced+ level in all of AV-Comparatives’ tests. 

For the 2020 Public Consumer Main Test Series, AV-Comparatives subjected 17 consumer security products for Windows to rigorous investigation. Programs were tested for their ability to protect against real-world internet threats, identify recent malicious programs, defend against advanced targeted attacks, and provide protection without slowing down PCs.

As well as receiving an Outstanding Product Award, ESET Internet Security received the Gold Award for False Positives, producing just five false positives and scoring higher than any other solution. It also earned Silver Awards for Malware Protection and Advanced Threat Protection. 

Reviewers of the software were impressed with the solution’s ease of use and its clean and easy-to-navigate interface. They also commended ESET Internet Security for the useful search function of its settings dialog and the range of advanced options, as well as its safe default settings. They noted that the real-time file system protection is sensitive and reacts very quickly when needed, and highlighted the “excellent” help features.

Commenting on the results, Matej Krištofík, Product Manager for Home Windows, said: “Here at ESET, we are dedicated to safeguarding consumers and their data, and this award is a testament to that commitment. To protect consumers across the globe from cyber-risks, technology must be easy to deploy and navigate, so we are very proud that ESET Internet Security has been recognized for its ease of use. With technology taking up more room in our lives than ever before, ESET balances cutting-edge protection with an intuitive interface, and these results reflect this.”
